Zeus: Master of Olympus

Zeus: Master of Olympus is a city building game by Impression Games. It focuses on building and maintaining a city in ancient Greece, and as with SimCity, requires careful management of the available resources to ensure the city grows.

The game is very well designed and has some beautiful artwork included throughout the menu system.

A number of adventures where goals are to be met are included. Open sandbox play is also permitted with no goals.

Once an adventure is selected, a storyline appears from which various difficulty levels can be set.

The world includes water, quarries, flatlands, trees, and various animals. Each of the resources can be exploited to facilitate the expansion of the city.

Features need to be added to the city to allow them to continue to grow such as water fountains, maintenance offices, and agoras. Parks and other beautification features are also necessary to ensure the citizens remain happy.
